Sir Winston Churchill spent many winters in Marrakech visiting Si Hassan El Glaoui’s family. Sir Winston Churchill is the one who discovered that his host’s son Hassan had a hidden passion, painting. In those days, it was considered a futility not to say a dishonour to be a painter when you belonged to the proud tribe of The Glaoua, known and considered in the Atlas region as the most fearless warriors. Sir Winston Churchill persuaded the Pacha to let his son Hassan move to Paris where he could pursue painting courses with the greatest masters of the forties. This catalogue presents paintings of both Sir Winston Churchill and Si Hassan El Glaoui that evoke Marrakech of the forties.
